Contact with Robots. Connecting or Alienating?

Wednesday 22 May 2024, 8 pm - 9:30 pm
Dutch lecture, conversation and dance | Radboud Reflects and Lindenberg Art and Technology

Venue: De Lindenberg, Steigerzaal, Nijmegen

Can you form a real bond with a robot friend like with a human friend? Can you trust a robot therapist as much as a human therapist? Do you experience a dance with a robot in the same way as with a human? In the future, robots will play an increasingly prominent role in our society. Will robots ever become our fellow humans, or will it remain "pretending"? And can robots, for example, provide a solution to increasing loneliness, or will they alienate us from what makes us human? Come, watch and listen to cognitive scientist Evelien Heijselaar, artist Bram Ellens and dancers from ArteZ and ponder the question of whether we will ever be able to make real contact with robots and whether we will then change as human beings.
